I can’t say ‘Next month I’m running a 5k’ anymore. It’s November…or should I say Movember?
In 15 days I’ll be running that 5k. I’m feeling pretty good, much the same as I did yesterday when it was still October. I know I can run 3.5k so 5k isn’t that far off right?
I’ve been studying the course map, and it doesn’t look too bad. My problem is imagining other runners on the course, and spectators and race marshalls lining it. For some reason I just can’t picture it in my head. I mean, I vaguely know what to expect, but I don’t actually KNOW what to expect. Does that make sense?
Anyway, on twitter, MoRunning posted a picture of the race medal. And I want one. I want one bad! So I guess I’ll focus on expecting to be handed that medal and let everything else just happen as it happens.
In the meantime, Runners World posted some great tips for running a first 5 or 10k. Very timely and useful information which I am going to take to heart and follow!
In fact, I need all the help I can get, because THIS month, I’m running a 5k!
